The latest merger of two corporate giants, worth a combined $5.1 billion, is far from New York City. Instead, it’s the joining of two major trucking companies, Swift and Knight. The new company, Knight-Swift, will be based in Phoenix, where both companies have their headquarters.

This merger helps both companies access a bigger pool of drivers and trucks around the country and in Mexico.
